1908P WW1 British Royal Dragoons Troopers Sword

Sales enquiries

The Royal Dragoons are one of the most prestigious names in British cavalry. In WW1 they served on the Western Front. The sword is marked "1 R D" on the inside of the bowl guard. The EFD made sword is also later marked to the Lincolnshire Yeomanry, as is the scabbard, which is not original to the sword (though also dated 1915); it is clear this marriage of the two happened while at the Lincolnshire Yeomanry (a common event). So the scabbard may well have served with another famous British cavalry regiment during WW1; in any event, they both fit each other well.

The 34 3/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard is battered and aged, but still very sound. The grip with some slight damage is overall in good condition; everything firm. The steel scabbard is in good condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.

If only swords could talk! Yours for only £550. Please quote item reference O34. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1364-1.18 (3.201).
